Changes, too, have been made since the year's work was arranged : 



10 



MINUTES OF THE 



some have resigned and others have changed their fields, and hence the 
names of some appear who are not now Missionaries of the Board, and 
the names of four appear twice. 

It will be seen also that these Missionaries are located in thirty-tico 
out of the thirty-nine Associations connected with this Convention. 
The Brier Creek, Brushy Mountain, Catawba River, Central, Colum- 
bus, Montgomery and Three Forks being the only Associations where 
the Board is not doing mission work. The territory in these is, accord- 
ing to the judgment of those best informed, for the time being, suffi- 
ciently occupied. 



The work on many of the mission fields cannot be shown by figures. 
This is specially true on the new fields. It takes time to lay wisely the 
foundation for a solid work. But the developments on man}- of these 
fields have been more rapid than our most sanguine expectations. 
Every year a large number of the places aided become self-sustaining. 
The work done, however, and the contributions made by the mission 
fields can partly be shown by the following figures, viz. :

OUR WORK. 



We have many departments but one work. For convenience, we call 
them State, Home and Foreign Missions, Education, Colportage, Sun- 
day-schools, &c. In a well equipped army there is the quartermaster, 
commissary and ordnance departments, the artillery, cavalry and in- 
fantry, each helpful to and dependent upon the others, but the one army. 
The one object called them all into existence, and all are used by the 
commanding General to foil the enemy's plans and advance the com- 
mon cause. 

But it is also true that State Missions in North Carolina for the past 
hundred years has been largely foundation work, and as we have aided it 
we have helped every other department. It was this view that Dr. M. T. 
Yates expressed, when he said : " The hope of the heathen world, under 



BAPTIST STATE CONVEXTION. 11 

God, depends upon well organized and well trained churches at home." 
It was this view that the late Prof. Phelps, of Andover, expressed, when 
he said: " If I were a missionary in China, my first and most important 
prayer ever)' morning should be for missions in America for the sake 
of China. Five hundred years of time in the process of the world's 
salvation may depend on the next twenty years of United States history." 

May w-e not say, with some reason too, as we look back over fifty 
years, and as we look at our present rapidly growing churches and For- 
eign Mission spirit, that five hundred years of time in the process of the 
salvation of some heathen countries may depend largely, under God, 
on the next twenty years of North Carolina Baptist mission work. 

Love to God and our fellow-man should prompt us to give to Foreign 
Missions, but love to God, to our fellow-man, to our State afid country 
.should lead us to give to State Missions. It was Paul, while a mission- 
ary among the heathen, who said: "To the Jew (State Missions) 
first, and also to the Greek " (Foreign Missions) : and again, " I could 
wish that myself were accursed from Christ for m}- brethren, rav kins- 
men according to the flesh ;" and it was our Divine Master who said to 
his people: " Ye shall be witnesses unto me, both in Jerusalem (Raleigh) 
and all Judea (all North Carolina — State Missions), and in Samaria (the 
vStates around — Home Missions), and unto the uttermost part of the 
earth" (Foreign Missions). 

EXIvARGED INTEREST. 

Many of the Associations at their recent sessions have shown increas- 
ing interest in State Missions. The Atlantic last year pledged for this 
year's work $327.03, this year it pledges for next year's work |i, 200; 
the Eastern pledged last year ^402, this year for next year's work 
|i,ooo ; the Robeson pledged last year $302, this \'ear for next year's 
work fi.ooo; the Mt. Zion pledged last year 1450, this year for next 
year's work $1,000 ; the Central pledged last year $1,000, this year 
$1,250; the Union pledged last year $250, this year $500; the Green 
River pledged last year $180, this year $300. 

The enlarged planning by the Associations this year has most natu- 
rally grown out of the enlarged plans of this Convention, determined 
upon a year ago at Henderson. 

In a critical time, more than three thousand years towards the first 
unfolding of God's providences to his people, his chosen leader of Israel 
said " Stand still," but his ever-present, and now displeased. Lord and 
Master said: "Lift up thy rod, stretch out thine hand over the sea, 
divide it, speak to Israel, go forward." 

In the times of Isaiah, twenty-six hundred years ago, mistaken Israel 
cried : " Awake ! awake ! put on strength, O arm of the Lord ; awake [ 
as in the ancient days, in the generations of old." God, in their opinion,. 



12 MINUTES OF THK 

needed to bestir himself. But the answer came, and their mistake was 
revealed. God said : "Awake! awake! stand up, O Jerusalem. Awake! 
awake I put on th}- strength, O Zion, put on thy beautiful garments, O 
Jerusalem." 

To call on God to do the superhuman when it is for us to awake and 
exert our powers to do the human is to excuse ourselves for neglected 
duty and place the blame of Zion's weakness on the Lord of Glorj'. 

OUR NEED. 

The gospel, as we believe it, faithfully preached and generally 
accepted, is not only the antidote for sin, sorrow and punishment, but 
also the preserving power of the Bible, the churches, the family, the 
Sabbath and the State and general government in which we live. The 
tilling that produces the largest yield enriches the soil. The preaching 
that informs the mind and stimulates the heart and secures the largest 
interest in and contributions to missions at home and abroad, deepens, 
widens and enriches most rapidly the experiences of believing souls. 
The pastor or the church that is aimless, is useless. 



HOME MISSIONS. 

The work of the Southern Baptist Convention is divided into three 
great departments, and is conducted through (i). The Foreign Mission 
Board, located in Richmond, Va. ; (2), The Southern Baptist Theologi- 
cal Seminary, located in Louisville, Ky., and (3), The Home Mission 
Board, located in Atlanta, Ga. 

The work of the Home Mission Board :uay be sub-divided into seven 
departments, viz.: mission work among y\), the Indians; (2), the 
negroes ; (3), the foreign population in the territory of the Southern 
Baptist Convention ; (4), the native white population in the South and 
West ; (5) the Island of Cuba ; (6), aiding in securing church prop- 
erty, and (7), the publication of a Sunday-school literature, "The Kind 
Words Series " and " Our Home Field." 

In all of these departments the Board is doing a large work, and in 
them all is worthy of our co-operation and most hearty support. 

At our last session the Convention agreed to try to raise |5,ooo for the 
Baptist house of worship in Havana, Cuba, but, owing largely to the 
delaj- in securing the title to the property, little of the above has been 
paid. The full amount should now l>e speedih' provided, and to this 
end we suggest that the pastors bring it to the attention of their people 
and ask them to help at once. 

The friends of the Board have reason to I)e grateful to the Great Head 



J'.APrJST STATE CONVENTION. 13 

of the Church for the successful prosecutiou of its work and for multi- 
plied tokens of Divine favor. The Holy Spirit has been abundantly 
poured out in connection with the preaching of many of its missionaries, 
new churches have been organized, wanderers have been reclaimed, and 
waste places have been made glad. 

In Cuba our cause still flourishes. Bro. Diaz, whose genial presence 
and unique addresses were such a benediction to us at our last Conven- 
tion, has recently suffered the indignity of an unjust and illegal impris- 
onment, but he has been released under bonds, and is now at work with 
his accustomed zeal for his Master and ours. The last of the difficulties 
in the way of our purchasing the church property in Havana has been 
removed, and the first payment on said property has been forwarded to 
Cuba. The work on that unhappy' island deserves our sympathies, 
prayers and contributions. 

Now let the Baptists of North Carolina, in common with their breth- 
ren of the other Southern vStates, show their appreciation of the work of 
the Home Board, and their gratitude to God for His blessing upon that 
work, by increasing their benefactions in this direction. Our abundant 
crops have greatly increased our ability, and we shall prove recreant to 
a great duty if we fail to send up a large contribution for Home Missions 
b}- May ist, 1891. Let us not delay, but raise that contribution as soon 
as possible, and make it worthy of the numbers and ability of North 
Carolina Baptists. 



FOREIGN MIvSSIONS. 

Our Lord and Master had an enlarged outlook on the world, a definite 
and an only remedy for man's sinful and rebellious nature, and knew 
the only channel through which the knowledge of this remedy could be 
successful!}^ made known ; and hence, from a soul regarding the best 
interest of His people, and a heart going out in great tenderness to the 
lost, He said to his disciples, " All power is given unto me in heaven 
and in earth. Go ye, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, bap- 
tizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy 
Ghost; teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have com- 
manded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the 
world." 

This command involved such a stupendous undertaking as men had 
never known before, and in obedience to which we now send out mis- 
sionaries to the heathen world. 

I.OOK ON THE KIEIvDS. 

The missionaries who have gone out from our North Carolina Baptist 
churches are located in three out of the six great fields occupied bv the 
missionaries of the Southern Baptist Convention.

DEATH AND RETURN OE MISSIONARIES. 

A year ago we numbered among our Foreign Missionaries from this 
.State C. L. Powell, Mrs. Powell and Mrs. Bostick. Bro. Powell's body 
went down amidst the waves of the Mediterranean Sea, and sister Powell 
and her children returned to their home in this State. Sister Bostick's 
bodj' sleeps in a grave in China, and through her death God seems to 
have awakened many to a realization of our duty to give the Gospel to 
the people for whom she toiled and died. M. T. Yates, Joseph Walker, 
C. L. Powell and sister Bostick are not. Who will take their places ? 



KAPTIST STATE CONVENTION. 15 



NEW MISSIONARIES APPOINTED. 

G. T. Watkius and Mrs. Watkiiis, of the Flat River Association, have 
recently been appointed by our Foreign Mission Board at Richmond, 
\'a., as Missionaries to China. They will soon be on the field. 

MANY ARE IMPRESSED. 

Many pious young men and women in our churches, some at our 
colleges and seminaries and some of our best and most successful pas- 
tors are impressed to go to the heathen. The Baptists of no State in 
the South have so many missionaries on the foreign field as the churches 
in North Carolina. 

SUGGESTIONS. 

Has not the time come for us to make an honest, brave eff"ort to influ- 
ence a number of our North Carolina Baptist churches each to support 
one of our missionaries now on the field, or to add to their number by 
sending out and supporting some of those in our midst now anxious to 
go to the heathen ? Cannot ten churches be found in our State that are 
able and willing to undertake such a work? We walk (go forward — 
make progress) by faith, not by sight. Should we not, in humble 
dependence on our Lord, undertake to do enough to bring Omnipotence 
to the help of weakness? Do not our churches need the magnetism of 
a large work and a resolute activity in it ? Can aught else fashion pas- 
tors and churches after the Divine pattern ? 

It seems that the command of our Redeemer, the necessities of the 
heathen, the ability of our churches, the opportunities of Divine provi- 
dence, the reflex influence upon our home work, and the jDromised 
reward of the faithful should lead us to enlarge our Foreign Mission work. 



SUNDAY-SCHOOLS. 

The second article of the Constitution of this Convention says: "The 
primary objects of this Convention shall be to encourage and support 
Wake Forest College * * * and co-operate with the Southern Baptist 
Convention in all its departments of labor;'' and in the twelfth article it 
sa3's: "The Board of Missions and Sunday-schools jf/m// encourage the 
churches to give liberally to all of the objects of the Convention, * * * 
encourage the distribution and stud}' of the Bible, and a sound religious 
literature in the homes, in the churches and in the Sunday-schools, 
encourage Sunday-school conventions and institutes, continue and, so far 
as it may be able and the growth of this work may require, enlarge the 
.Sunday-School Supply Store, and co-operate zvith all Missionary and 
Sunday-school work of the Southern Baptist Convention."' 



16 -MIXlTEs; OF THE 

The report of the Southern Baptist Convention at Fort Worth, Texas, 
last May, with reference to Sunday-school literature, was the fruit of 
careful deliberation in the committee room and before the body, preceded 
by a year's canvass of the merits of the question, and the report was 
adopted by an overwhelming majority. That report provides for a com- 
mittee of nine, located at Louisville, Ky., entrusted with our Sunday- 
school interest, and the publication of our Sunday-school literature, 
known as the Kind Words Series, and is to work in co-operation with 
the State Sunday-school and Colportage Boards, and the committee and 
its v.'ork are commended to the churches and Sunday-schools within our 
bounds for sympathy and prayers and patronage so far as may accord 
with their judgment. 

The work of this committee is related to and responsi1>le to the South- 
ern Baptist Convention, just as the T'oreign and Home Mission Boards 
are related and responsible. Like them, it is to co-operate with State 
Boards, and, like them, cannot compel patronage. 

This Convention and its boards are related to the Sunday-school Com- 
mittee of the Southern Baptist Convention just as they are related to 
the Foreign and Home Mission Boards. All should have our full and 
most hearty co-operation. 

AS.SOCIATIONS. 

INIanv Sundav-school associations have been formed, and through them 
a good work begun. Other associations will be formed in the early part 
of next vear. These associations, if wi.sely used, will greatly stimulate 
our Sunday-school, colportage and Bible work. In this department, just 
as in all others, we must do our own denominational work through the 
plans devised by this Convention. 

RKCO.MMKXDATIOXS. 

1. That the pastors of our churches, and officers and teachers in our 
Sundav-schools, and such other members of our churches as the schools 
mav select, meet with the First Baptist Church in the city of Raleigh, 
N. C, on Thursday, S P. M., March 5th, 1891, to organize a compact, 
working. Baptist .State Sunday-school Convention. 

2. That the Board of Missions and Sunday-Schools be authorized to 
make all needed arrangements for the first .session of tliis Convention.

these have given only a small part of their time to the work, and hence 
have not accomplished much ; while others have devoted themselves 
with energy and cheerfulness to the be.st interests of the people, and the 
results have been large. Your Board could use wiselv #5,000 in this 
work next year.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S CENTRAL COMMITTEE 
OF MISSIONS TO THE BOARD OF MISSIONS, iSSg-'go. 

The report of the year's work of the Woman's Missionary vSocieties, 
given by the Central Committee of Missions, is one of steadily maintain- 
ing our ground rather than of any great or sudden advance. More than 
this could hardly be hoped for, when most of our societies are in the 
country where, for the first half of the year, there was, for many a 
farmer's wife, a hand-to-hand struggle with poverty. 

The most encouraging features of the work have been the increased 
interest taken in the organization and encouragement of Women's Mis- 
sionary Societies by the pastors of the churches and the testimony of 
many that these societies are centers of spiritual life and culture. 

It is the earnest wish of the Central Committee to see North Carolina 
Baptists foremost in every good work, and by few agencies can this be 
more splendidly accomplished than by our women, nature's teachers, 
becoming intelligent, liberal and enthusiastic advocates of missions in 
all its branches. This is the aim of the Central Committee : to promote 
intelligence about missions by large, free distribution of missionary liter- 
ature ; liberality to missions by systematic giving ; enthusiasm about 
missions by full and free discussion of missions in women's meetings. 

For the attainment of this high, three-fold aim we earnestly ask the 
A-o-operation of every Baptist pastor in North Carolina. 

SrNBK.\M.S 

The "Sunbeam" work, or the work of forming Children's Missionary 
Societies, has never taken the hold upon the affections of North Carolina 
Baptists which a work so potential of present and future good deserves. 
Leave the children of to-day untaught in missions, and the men of 



RAPTIST STATE C0\VP:NTI0N. 19 

to-morrow will be almost untractable — the men of that to-morrow to 
which all the eyes of the world are turning with hope that it may bring 
the glorious da}- of a world redeemed. To-day holds to-morrow in its 
grasp, to come forth what we shape it by our clasp. The children are 
clay in our hands. Shall they be formed to serve the God of Missions ? 
There are but twenty-six Sunbeam Societies in the Baptist Sunday- 
schools of North Carolina. May the Sunday-school superintendents 
treble this number before our next report ! 

THE woman's missionary UNION. 

With the new Conventional year your Central Committee becomes a 
part of the Woman's Missionary Union, to which belongs the Central 
Committee of every State connected with the Southern Baptist Con- 
vention. 

The Missionary Union was formed three years ago under the auspices 
of the Home and Foreign Boards of Missions of the Southern Baptist 
Convention, and since its organization has proved so beneficial as a 
bond of union, a source of information, and a medium for the dissemi- 
nation of missionary information, that we hope for greatly increased 
strength by union with it. 

At the beginning of the year the Central Committee struck from its 
list a number of societies from which no reports had been received 
during the year. Others, however, quickly took their places, sixteen 
new societies having been formed during the last quarter alone, making 
the number of societies on the Committee's books 140. Many of these 
are in churches which are themselves mission stations, and the amounts 
given by them must necessarily be small. 

During the year the Missionary Talk has been regularly published, 
1,200 copies being sent out every month. W^ith these have been sent 
large numbers of tracts, furnished us by the Foreign Mission Board. 

A necessary change in quarters, into which the Committee divides the 
year, renders the statement below but a" partial one of the amounts 
given by the societies :

BAl'TIST STATK COX VKNTK )N. ZO 

Elder C. Durham offered the following resolution, con- 
sideration of which was postponed till the consideration of 
the subject of Foreign Missions : 

Wherkas, a large number of our brethren and sisters have gone as 
missionaries to foreign fields, and still a great number seem impressed 
by the Divine Spirit to go to the heathen ; and 

Wherkas, The Lord has, year by year, given us increasing numbers, 
with enlarged ability and manifest disposition to do more in this depart- 
ment of our work, and the Foreign Mission Board is anxious to send 
forth other missionaries as rapidly as the necessary means are furnished 
to do so ; and 

Whi<;rka,s, God, in so man}- ways, has opened up fields which seem 
■white unto the harvest, and is thereby calling on his people to heroic 
endeavor ; therefore. 

J\eso/i'Cci, That we will, "looking unto Him," make an honest efiort 
to secure for this work during next year |li5,ooo. 

Elder C. E. Ta\lor, for Committee on Resolutions of Bro. 
J. H. ]\Iills, offered a report, consideration of which was

the missionaries, amounting to ^1,028.58. The report was 
then adopted. 

On motion of Bro. Hufham, the Board was instructed to

Elder T. J. Taylor, of Warrenton. 

Bro. J. B. Carlyle read the report of the Board of Educa- 
tion, and addresses were made by J. B. Carlyle, W. L. 
Wright, G. W. Sanderlin, A. T. Robertson, Professor in 
Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. 

A collection was then taken in cash and pledges amount- 
ing to $328.91 for the Students' Fund of the Southern 
Baptist Theological Seminary. 

The report of the Board of Education was then adopted, 
as follows : 

AXXIAL REPORT BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

One of the primary objects of our Convention, as stated in its consti- 
tution, is "to educate young men called of God to the ministry and 
approved by the churches to which they belong." 



P.Al'TIST STATIC CONVENTION'. Zt 

For the furtherance of this object the Board of Education was estab- 
lished, with the view that it should assist promising and indigent young 
ministers so far as the funds at its disposal would justify, and for this it 
has labored through all the years of its history. Its work has been 
truly glorious. 

Hundreds of young ministers have been aided by funds contributed 
by the churches and disbursed under its auspices. vSome of these have 
gone to foreign fields, and have given their labors and lives to the work 
of preaching the gospel to the heathen. In all sections of our State its 
beneficiaries may be found active workers in advancing all our denomi- 
national enterprises. In fact, we may say that our progress, prosperity 
and prestige as a denomination are in no small measure due to the 
labors and influence of men who have been trained under the auspices 
of this Board. 

Now, brethren, let us go forward. More men are asking for aid than 
ever before. The enlargement of our denominational work, the peculiar 
tendencies of, the times, the progressive spirit of our age, all demand the 
best possible training in the men who are in the future to lead the 
Baptist hosts of North Carolina to victory. 

During the past Conventional year the Board has aided in all forty- 
five j'oung ministers. One of these, Bro. M. W. Cooper, of Elizabeth 
City, a young man of energy, piety and promise, was taken from us by 
death. 

There are now at the College sixty young men preparing for the work 
of the ministry, the largest number, we believe, ever enrolled at one 
time. Thirty-five of these are beneficiaries of the Board. Two others 
are at Bethel Hill Academy preparing for college, supported through the 
generosity of Rev. J. A. Beam, making in all thirty-seven young men 
now aided by the Board. Others still are asking for help, but we cannot 
take them now. 

We are glad to report the Board practically free from debt, with a 
balance in the hands of the treasurer, and with the co-operation of the 
brethren we hope to be in the same condition one year hence. 

We are enlarging our work. Will not all our churches increase their 
contributions during the coming year ? 

Our financial report is as follows : 

Received from J. D. Boushall, Treasurer of Convention *|2,954 04

The report was then adopted, as follows : 
REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF WAKE FOREST COLLEGE. 

WH.\T WE H.WE. 



We have an invested endowment of |i55,ooo ; a beautiful campus of 
twenty acres ; four large brick buildings, well adapted for the objects for 
which they were designed ; eleven Professors, all pious, scholarly, vig- 
orous and popular ; two hundred students, more than ever before at the 



34 MINUTES OF TIJE 

same stage of the session, sixty of them young ministers of unusual 
promise : twent^'-five of them are paying their own expenses. The 
Department of Physical Culture is well equipped, and has already proved 
a great success, and of real value in the improved phj'sique of the stu- 
dents. 

WHAT WE NEED. 

We need a larger endowment. The income of the College does not 
pa}' its necessary expenses. This year, with the present endowment, 
the expenses will exceed the income by about $2,300. We must either 
cut down our work or increase the endowment. We need two new Pro- 
fessors, costh^ physical apparatus, an infirmary, water-works, a building 
for natural historj' museum, and an observatory. 

We must get read\^ for 500 students, and then secure this number as 
rapidly as possible. Ever}' interest of our State and the Master's cause 
committed to our hands demand this enlargement. 

Last August the Board of Trustees had, through our honored President 
of the College, a proposition from Bro. Bostwick, of New York, to enlarge 
our endowment. The Board at once accepted the generous offer, and 
relieved, for the time being, the President of his duties as such officer 
and Professor, and urged him to undertake the difficult and most impor- 
tant work of putting in busiuess shape b}- March ist, 1891, fifty thousand 
dollars. Dr. Taylor has undertaken this great work. He needs the 
co-operation of every Baptist in the State. We most heartily commend 
him and this work to the sympathies and aid of this Convention — to all 
the people of our State. 

C. DURHA^NI, ChaJDiiait Coniiiiitfce. 

Elder T. H. Pritcliard presented the report of the Trits- 
tees of Ministers' Relief, and remarks were made by T. H. 
Pritchard, C. T. Bailey, W. R. Gwaltney, C. Durham and 
T. Hume. 

Pending the discussion, the hour for adjournment arrived 
and the Convention adjourned, with benediction by Elder 
T. H. Pritchard. 



baptist state convention. 3o 

Night SEvSSion. 

The President was in the chair. Elder D. M. Austin 
led in prayer. 

On motion, the consideration of the Baptist Orphanage 
was made the special order for 3:30 p. m., Sunday. 

The special order being the consideration of that part of 
the report of the Board of Missions and Sunday-Schools 
referring to Foreign Missions, Elder T. P. Bell, Assistant 
Corresponding Secretary of the Foreign Mission Board, 
was introduced and addressed the Convention. Remarks 
were also made by F. C. Hickson, C. A. Woodson, J. J. 
Hall, C. E. Taylor, C. Durham, T. H. Pritchard. 

A cash collection was then taken for Foreio;n Missions, 
amounting to $71.40. 

The resolution offered by Bro. Durham to try to raise 
$15,000 for Foreign Missions, was then adopted as an 
amendment to the report on Foreign Missions, and the 
report was then adopted. 

Bro. Broughton offered the following, which was adopted : 

Resolved, That in future the Introductory Sermon of this Convention 
be preached on Tuesday night before the assembling of the Convention 
on Wednesday. 

The report of the Board for the Relief of Aged and 
Infirm Ministers came up as unfinished business, and was 
discussed by J. D. Hufham, F. C. Hickson, W. L. Wright, 
C. A. Woodson, J. A. Speight, T.J. Taylor, W. A. Graham. 

The report was then adopted, as follows : 

REPORT OF THE BOARD FOR THE RELIEF OF AGED AND 
INFIRM MINISTERS. 

Your Board met soon after the close of the last Convention and organ- 
ized by the election of the following officers ; D. L. Gore, Chairman ; 
Jacob S. Allen and J. L. Stewart, Vice-Presidents; Duncan McEachern, 
Secretary and Treasurer, and P. B. Manning, Corresponding Secretary. 

A constitution and by-laws were adopted and rules prescribed for the 



3G MINUTES- (.F THE 

relief of worthy persons applying for help from the Board. In addition, 
a circular containing an earnest appeal was mailed to every pastor in 
the State, with the request that the Corresponding Secretary should be 
provided with the name of some person in each church who would repre- 
sent the interests of this Board. To these several hundred circulars the 
Corresponding Secretar}' reaeived responses from few pastors, and so far 
as our knowledge extends, while this is one of the regular Boards of 
the Convention, but few associations in the whole State have recognized 
its existence. Three applications have been made to the Board for 
relief, two of them were from widows of deceased pastors, but so meagre 
were our receipts that we did not feel authorized to make any appro- 
priations. 

That so little has been done we profoundly regret, but at the same 
time, we respectfully submit that the fault does not rest with us. We 
were not instructed to put an agent in the field to collect funds for this 
cause, and the members of this Board were so circumstanced that they 
were not able to visit many churches or associations to represent this 
interest, but from time to time we have kept it before the public b}- 
appropriate articles in the Recorder and Charity and Children, and we 
did hope that our people would recognize its importance and respond to 
its appeals. 

We believe that the object is a most worthy one ; that there is an 
imperative demand for its generous and vigorous prosecution, and all 
that is needed to secure a liberal response from the churches in its behalf 
is that the pastors shall present its claims properly to their people. 

We are sorry to report only one hundred dollars contributed to this 
most worthy object during the year, four-fifths of which were given by 
one church. D. L. GORE, President. 

P. B. M.\NNiNG, Corresponding Secretary. 

The Convention then adjonrned, with benediction by 
Elder T. P. Bell. 



FOURTH DAY. 

Devotional exercises were conducted by Elder W. J. 
Fulford. 

At half-past nine Vice-President Graham took tlie chair, 
and Elder J. W. Carter led in prayer. 

The minutes of the third day were read and approved. 

The following were appointed a committee to nominate 



BAPTIST STATE rONVENTION. 37 

the Board for the Relief of Aged and Infirm Ministers : 
C. A. Woodson, C. T. Bailey, Thomas Carrick. 

On motion, the vote by which the report of the Board 
for Ministers' Relief was adopted was reconsidered and 
recommitted. 

Elder W. h. Wright, for the committee, read the report 
on Periodicals, which, after remarks by C. T. Bailey, T. P. 
Bell, W. R. Gwaltney, was adopted, as follows : 

REPORT ON PERIODICALS. 

No one can be interested in that of which he is ignorant, and intelli- 
gence concerning a matter of importance is eagerlj' sought and devoured. 
So, then, the religious periodical is both a necessity and a luxury. The 
Bible gives us the history of Christianity up to about the close of the 
first century, and Church history from that time to near the present ; 
but the news of to-day and the issues of to-day must be learned through

brethren and their work in distant lands ; Our Home Field, represent- 
ing the work of the Home Board, and the Kind Words series of Sunday-

news about the College, its Alumni, and its work.

Forest College, entering that institution after his marriage. The Flat 
River .\ssociation has purchased a home for his widow and children.

and a large part of the purcliase-mouey has Ireen paid — a most delight- 
ful iustance of Christian cliarity. 

Since the last session of this body Wni. D. Pritchard, of Camden 
County, has passed to his heavenly home. He was a man of singularly 
sunny spirit, untiring energy and consecrated life. He was an accept- 
able preacher and an excellent pastor. He filled a large measure of 
usefulness, and having passed his three-score years and ten was called 
to his eternal reward. 

Julian P. Faison, of Duplin County, for thirty-three years an honored 
and useful minister of the Eastern Association, has also entered into 
heavenly rest during the year just closed. He was a man of fine natural 
talents, which was improved by education an.d association ; a gentle and 
unselfish spirit, an excellent preacher, by the fireside as well as in the 
pulpit, and a wise and patient pastor. The fatal illness came upon him 
while on the regular monthly visit to his churches. He was a little over 
sixty years of age. COMMITTEE.

Night Session. 

Convention was called to order at 7 p. m. by Vice-Presi- 
dent Wm. A. Graham. 

Prayer by Elder Leqeux. 

Elder Pritchard, who was absent when the report was 
called for this morning, read the report of the Committee 
on the Orphanage, which was adopted, as follows: 



40 MINUTES OF THE 

REPORT ON ORPHANAGE. 

Neaily twenty-five hundred years ago Ziou made her pathetic appeal 
to Jehovah, in a time of national calamity, "We are orphans and father- 
less, our mothers are widows." The sad condition of orphanage 
appeals to the great heart of Almighty God, and touches ever}- generous 
nature. Our Divine Lord was once a child, and throughout the life of 
thronging duties and supreme trials which culminated on the cross, 
ever maintained the closest attachment to and the most loving sympa- 
thy with childhood. To dead Lazarus He only spoke ; to the cold form 
of Jairus's little daughter He stretched out a warm hand, full of the mag- 
netism His yearning heart supplied, and lifted her up. 

The Christian is worthy of the high distinction of his title ouh' as he 
reflects the spirit of his Master. It was the spirit of the Master which 
prompted James to say: "Pure religion and undefiled before God and 
the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and the widows in their afflic- 
tion, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." 

Our Orphanage at Thomasville is the legitimate product of pure and 
undefiled religion, and no cause comes closer to the heart of the Chris- 
tian and the patriot. At Thomasville the denomination has spent about 
f 15,000 duriug the past year, and from ever}- section of the State gath- 
ered helpless orphans, under sixteen years of age (127 of whom are now 
at the Orphanage), to save them from want and evil associations, and 
bless with wise and lovhig care. IMany others are appealing for 
admission, but we have not, as j^et, room to receive them. It is hoped 
that the Lassiter building will be completed by December. Work on the 
infirmary is being pressed forward, and before another month this noble 
gift of sister R. D. Fleming will be in condition for practical use. 

Gharity and Children is doing a good work, and, as the organ of the 
Orphanage, its future is full of promise. 

We are happy to know there are vSunday-schools in the vState that 
have undertaken to support orphans at the Orphanage. The expense of 
an orphan is 55 per mouth, and we urge the vSunday-schools to assist in 
this waj-. 

Thus have we abundant cause for encouragement, while the need of 
progress is in proportion to past success and present urgent demands.

BAPTIST STATE COXVENTION. 41 

Elder C. Durham read the report of the Board of Trus- 
tees of the Baptist Feuiale University, as follows : 

FIRST ANNUAL REPORT OF THE TRUvSTEEvS OF THE 
BAPTIST FEMALE UNIVERSITY. 

At the last session of this Convention a Board of twenty-five Trustees 
was appointed to locate, establish and manage a Baptist Female College 
of high grade, and, as your servants, we render this, our first annual 
report. 

There were many difficult questions to be considered and settled by 
us, and we felt the weight of responsibility thus necessarily involved 
After much investigation, discussion, reflection, and prayer for Divine 
guidance, we unanimously located the institution in the city of Raleigh. 
One of the most eligible locations in or about the city was selected, and 
the work of payments, on the installment plan, began. These payments 
run through three years, and when completed the denomination will 
have secured one of the most desirable locations to be found in the 
State. 

Nothing towards the erection of buildings or opening the institution 
can, perhaps, be wisely undertaken until the property is paid for in full. 
This will take time. It is, however, a great work, and designed to affect 
for good the generations to come ; and a great denomination, engaged 
in such an enterprise, can afford to take all the time needed to lay 
wisely the foundations of this institution. 

The Trustees are determined and hopeful, and mean, by the favor of 
God and the aid of the denomination, to push to a blessed consumma- 
tion the work committed to them. They beg the patience, the sympa- 
thies and the co-operation of the Convention and the Baptists of the 
State in their important and difficult task. 

Respectfully submitted, 

N. B. BROUGHTON, President. 
G. W. Greene, Secretary of Board. 

Resolved ist, That we have heard with pleasure the report of the 
Board of Trustees of our Baptist Female University. 

Resolved 2d, That this Board of Trustees be requested to press with all 
the speed their wisdom shall dictate, the completion of the work com- 
mitted to them. 

Resolved jd, That this work is most heartily commended to the sym- 
pathies and co-operation of the Baptists of the entire State. 

Addresses were made by Elders Carter, Hufham and 
Skinner, and the report was adopted. 



42 MINUTES OF THE 

Elder Hall offered the following resolutions, which were 
adopted : 

Resolved, That we extend our sincere and hearty thanks to the people 
of Shelby for the generous manner in which they have entertained this 
Convention, making the staj^ of the delegates enjoyable ; that we shall 
ever look back to the days spent at vShelb}- with gratitude and thankful- 
ness. 

Resolved, That we also express our thanks to the railroad companies 
that gave special rates to those attending this Convention. 

On motion, the Convention adjourned, with benediction 
bv Elder Pritchard.
